Aston Villa keen on Luis Suarez

Luis Suarez-Atletico Madrid

Aston Villa are looking to add more depth and quality to their attacking department. Even manager Steven Gerard has identified Luis Suarez as a target, as per Telegraph.

The 35-year-old is leaving Atletico Madrid this summer after his contract expired, and the Uruguayan international has been linked with a move to Villa Park.

Gerard has already signed a former teammate in Philippe Coutinho during the January transfer window, and he is looking to reunite with Suarez in the Premier League now.

The Uruguayan could be a useful option for Aston Villa despite the fact that he has past his peak.

The 35-year-old Uruguayan international has proven himself across multiple leagues, and he has won major trophies all across Europe.

His winning experience and leadership qualities could be priceless for the Aston Villa dressing room, and he could mentor young players like Ollie Watkins.

The European international is available on a free transfer r and it remains to be seen whether Aston Villa can convince the striker to return to the Premier League this summer.

Luis Suarez helped Atletico Madrid win the Spanish league title last season, and he has the quality to make a difference at Aston Villa as well.

The former Liverpool and Barcelona star, is unlikely to get better opportunities at this stage of his career. The chance to return to the Premier League could be a tempting proposition for him.

Suarez knows the Premier League well from his time at Liverpool, and he should be able to settle in quickly. Also, he had a great relationship with Gerrard as a teammate, and the Aston Villa manager could help him fit in seamlessly.
